At this yearís International Toy Fair in Nuremberg (February 3-8), Audi will showcase the Auto Union Type C e-tron, a concept study with a fully-electric drive based on the firm's limited edition pedal car, which is sold through is quattro GmbH subsidiary.

The unique Auto Union Type C e-tron boasts a hand-finished body made of aluminum and mock carbon material. Measuring 2.32 meters in length and 97 centimeters in width, the 1:2 scale model is suitable for children as well as adults up to 1.8 meters tall. The high-tech toy car is powered by an electric motor delivering 1.5HP and up to 60 Nm of torque. Power is supplied by a lithium-ion battery and is transmitted to the rear wheel. The concept study is also equipped with a reverse gear.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
